The production line of a new domestically manufactured naval missile system, named the Zafar (Victory), was officially launched in Iran yesterday and the first batch of the missile system was delivered to Iranian Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Naval Force. Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi told reporters that the Zafar missile is a short-range anti-vessel radar-guided cruise missile, which can target small and medium-sized targets with high precision, according to Iranian Mehr (MNA) News Agency. The missile system can be installed on various types of vessels, he said, adding that the Zafar missile enjoys remarkable features like light weight, capability to repel electronic attacks, and high destructive power. "The Zafar missile loses altitude after being launched, and then cruises at low altitude in order to be hidden from sight of the enemy, and in the final stage identifies the target at a low altitude and destroys the target," he explained. He also said that the Zafar missile system is a completely indigenized system, which was designed and manufactured by competent and skilled Iranian experts and engineers.
